AUSTIN (KXAN) — A broken pipe spewed water 23 feet into the air in south Austin Tuesday morning, just 50 feet from a nearby home.
Austin police describe a huge hole in the roadway that forced them to shut down the area near the 2100 block of Barton Parkway in both directions at Homedale Drive. The area is a few blocks away from Barton Hills Elementary School. KXAN has reached out to both the district and Austin Water.
The call came in about 7:43 a.m.
KXAN is sending a crew to the scene and will update this story as more information becomes available.
